Madeira is an island archipelago situated in the Atlantic Ocean, southwest of Portugal. It's renowned for its warm sandy beaches and wine culture. Verdant and mountainous, subtropical Madeira boasts enticing nature trails, stunning scenery, and botanical gardens. You can enjoy mountain hiking, sailing, canyoning, paragliding, scuba diving, whale and dolphin watching or simply take it easy on the beach.
Why not book a holiday package for your Madeira break? The flight and hotel expenses are billed together at preferential rates, a less expensive option than paying each separately. It saves time in making arrangements and leaves you with plenty of money to spend on souvenirs.
Madeira has an annual average temperature of 73 degrees Fahrenheit. It's best to visit between May and August when the weather is hot but there is minimal rainfall. Come at this time of year and you get to participate in the Madeira wine festival, which is held every August.
